    Accidentally droppedmy 26 today. I have no problems racking a round but cycling the rounds in the magazine is difficult and very resistance.

    Am I being paranoid or is this perfectly normal.

    Spend your off time loading/unloading/loading/unloading all your magazines while watching TV (weapon out of reach or in another room)........before too long, VIOLA!

    As for "dropping" a weapon?

    I made that mistake only ONCE some 35+ years ago; dead tired on the parade deck at Parris Island, SC.....sitting on the very top aluminum bleachers and the front (maybe rear) sling separated from my rifle....

    "Clack, Clack, Clack!" as it bounced off the deck below!

    Not my best day of USMC recruit training (summer 1984).........

    It's all good. I had a friend over to do some shooting on my range. I was loading extra mags. for the day, I was in the basement concrete floor and all, when my friend was going to "help". He grabbed a couple of fully loaded 17 rd. 9mm mags. and dropped one. It hit the concrete hard, I picked it up checked for cracks then checked the lips all was good and looked brand new. I doubt if a pressed metal magazine would have faired as well.

    You G26 says:

    "You dropped me and you thought I broke. Haha! No! Let's go shoot!"

    Your G26 will not break even if you threw it 50 yards away into the cement.
    Don't worry, just shoot :D

    Or dropped it 150 feet from your helicopter onto a concrete runway.

    I'm guessing it's fair to say that you were smarter (or luckier) than I was!

    "Well, you little maggot, it appears that you cannot control an empty 6.5 pound weapon!"

    DI hands me two full canteens to hold at 90 degrees with my pinky fingers....

    Yep. good times!

    Dropped my 27 on pavement 10 years ago. Pushed the rear sight over but otherwise not a scratch.my cousin now owns it and it is still going strong to this day. Just shoot the dang thing. It isn't fine China, it's the must rugged gun ever made. Now act accordingly.

    Your G26 is your equipment and I do equipment check. You got to be prepared. Now anecdotally bubba will say your Glock will be okay after a nuclear blast.

    I am retired now but I carried weapons in life and death situations for 40+ years. If I think I might have a problem with one Glock I would carry my second Glock until the first one is checked out.

    All part of the two = one, one = zero thing. JMHO YMMV.

    do like the sig forum guys do and cry about it for no less than 7 days, blame everyone but yourself, demand that the company fixes it for you then sell it to buy a pristine condition one and never take it out of the safe ever again.

    Man that’s a bummer. Sorry that happened.

    I would probably feel the same as you and be a little paranoid and concerned. I definitely have OCD tendencies over my guns and other valuable items that are important to me that I’ve spent a good amount of cash on. I use that hard earned cash to buy the most durable, reliable, invincible gun I can get and I still baby it. Go figure.

    I don’t have any experience like this one but from all the torture tests and drops tests etc I’d be willing to say your gun is fine. BUT as always, check it out and inspect it to make sure everything looks ok and be safe.
